Library Hours: Due to the Corona Virus, our physical library is not open for students. However, students may use Destiny Discover, the library catalog, to search the library for books and submit a Book Request (this Google Form can also be found on the Library Canvas Course or throughout Destiny Discover). Once you request a book, I'll send you an email telling you when it's available for pickup.
Can't make it to school to pick up your books? I would love to deliver them to you. On the Google Form, there is an option for you to request your books be delivered. Make sure you choose that to get the books you want to read!!
